Re: Rinnani 1001f Heater not 1001FA Looking for manual
I just had the the same error message and it was the gas line was turned off. it may also be that there were too many gas fumes for it to light. Wait awhile and try again - at least that worked for me...

There are two fans or blowers in your unit. The first to turn on prior to the flame starting. The second fan blows out hot air into the room. Depending upon when the rattle starts will dictate which fan is causing the rattle. Any good gas company should be able to help you out.
If you smell gas in a Rinnai you have a big issue. This heater is what is called a direct vent heater with an electronic ignition so the combustion chamber is sealed and the smell of gas is an indication that you have a gas leak. Please call a professional today.
Try disconnecting the unit and thoroughly cleaning the dual walled intake and vent pipe that goes through the wall. Use a small brush to make sure the passages are free from any obstructions. These units have safety mechanisms that are very sensitive and sometimes will shut off when something as seemingly insignificant as a leaf or spider web creates a slight blockage. A yearly inspection and clean out are necessary.
This unit is designed to cycle on and off. Are you telling us that the unit just shuts off without reaching set temperature and does not come on again? If so, check the air filter for debris and clean if necessary. It is found on the top of the unit close to the wall. There are two. Next make sure the venting system is not restricted or sucking back in the exhaust in the air intake. The air intake is a slot in the outter chrome "desk bell" shaped metal cap. If you observe the steam being sucked back in, there is your problem. There is a a temperature sensor wire behind the unit enclosed within the sheet metal shroud. Remove the top of the shroud where the air filters are and look down to the lower right side (as you are standing in front of the heater) of the back of the heater and you will see a black plastic probe with a yellow wire attached. This is your temperature sensor. This sensor may be bad. To test it, while the unit is running and set for normal room temp, take your warm hand and cover the probe. The unit should turn off within a few seconds to a half minute. Next take an ice cube and wrap it in a small cloth. Place the cube on the same probe. The unit should turn back on. If not, replace the sensor.
